Those who sometimes have a disappointment at Cyril Ramaphosa's fighting against pro-Zuma forces constantly advise that the president can not protect the ANC's risk and to # 39 ; strengthen the opposition to his tenancy. But this understanding needs to be limited, as long as it is; get help to cure problems. Where that ability is banned, does it still support it?

There is no need to review the expectations that many people have respect for Cyril Ramaphosa's leadership. Many were not essential and could have come from a respite feeling when Jacob Zuma was abandoned, rather than being able to do Ramaphosa.
In the early months, Ramaphosa made a great deal of confidence as a result of the normal, systematic and moderate way of managing his position. This was a different indication of previous anti-behaviors, who had previously been, including again the practices and the Constitution itself, which has expressed its relevance to the quality of South African in general, and to be involved in self-esteem. There was no good cost for the country to be discharged to be & # 39; distributing their ineffective excellence for wealth and power.
Cyril Ramaphosa was extremely pleased with her business community and her. He could still be feeling well. Business wants certainty and continuity and there is not a person who challenges Ramaphosa in a moment – at least this is not open. Even Ramaphosa does not meet all the hopes or hopes of her; Creating a better weather for the investment of the weaknesses that arises from the sustained and challenging vulnerability.
It was apparent from the beginning, even before becoming a state president, Ramaphosa wanted state cleansing. Some progress has been made by placing the boards instead and its; trying to pay back money irregularly back.
On the one hand, the following months have continued to prove, although it is sometimes unfair, against the anomalies that affected Zuma's activities and Zuma's time. Here he has relied heavily to the Minister who is often remote Public Affairs, Pravin Gordhan, who continues to a large extent of EFF's deterioration, with few ANC leaders rising to defend (See: Nomboniso Gasa and Carol Paton and the statement Jackson Mthembu ANC failure to protect Rear.)
Originally its determination, prominent professionalism and adherence to Ramaphosa's loyalty related to; influencing the uncertainty about his situation in the ANC and at the end also as a state president.
This was first written in numbers with a small majority with whom he was elected president of ANC. It has not been extinct, but has consistently increased in a series of conclusions to support against Ramaphosa. Zuma has not retired and is a big part of this. Other Zumaites are still being moved for battle, like in the former northwest and head of the regional ANC, Supra Mahumaphelo, not including the length of time & # 39 ; as they were loyal, to & # 39; Waiting for the time Ramaphosa could remove a change within who best suits personal interests.
There's nothing political about this. It's just a question to do & # 39; looking for support / client relationships, revitalizing the benefits of Zuma, which previously gave huge financial benefits to fair and more often fair.
From those who are familiar with the outside of the country, support for and against Ramaphosa is more or less coincidentally among the six ANC directors, the NEC and the NWC, with their head over to appearing against.
Chapineat is a & # 39; excavation
Even if a person in the situation in the Cabinet does not have a strong interest in having concerns about a continuing presence in a senior office that has been said, with some belief, to be involved in actions criminals.
Because those people, who are independent in many eyes, are like the leaders of the country tell us something about the extent to which managers have been appointed to defend them who can not reasonably claim protection as models for reporting. If they are desirable, even the features and features of crime, what does it tell us about their appointment after the famous actions they make?
If a person can not break up with his / her character; at risk of some of the worst of Zuma's time-making decisions, one that allows those who are referred to as leaders who are at the same time. participating in a broad leadership role in society, that is, a place that will be a " moving forward to the country, which creates a sense of confidence that better things are.
One of the results of the lack of extensive support that Ramaphosa finds out that no action can be made against Zumaites is to be taken out of not being able to; Give an active challenge – or not the calculations made by Ramaphosa – taking into account different issues that are in fact; suffering disobedience. It is told that its supporters say it needs to wait before it works against one person or another and is held in a high office until other processes are taken forward.
In some respects, there is rigor, in particular about the processes that carry out state-owned initiatives, through the work of Pravin Gordhan, but in general, good attention. There is a sense that Ramaphosa is ready to create "boats" but is not willing to stop his enemies / enemies and threaten he has been removed.
Surely, it would be difficult if Zuma's agent replaced her. But if Zuma's practitioners are still in command and impediment that can be done, the features that appear to be " celebrating the time of Ramaphosa from what had previously been unhappy.
Detection and vision
Another difficult feature of the current time is that the communications that do not exist; come from the ANC leaders and their Chapters; represents a responsible thinking group that can be learned by people, that can be guided in their actions in terms of what behavior can be progressed or placed on cross-cutting goals. In this time, indeed since 1994, the ANC has been a major player in successful elections and now has a brutal threat to its impact.
There is a lot of voting (as was the case for other parties, such as the DA). Voting is a message that does not have a & # 39; Getting in the first place from the values that the ANC sees as important as to & # 39; building a society with special features, including mutual respect, promoting equality and ending of poverty.
Polling results come from the samples of people saying they want or do not want from the ANC. This information may be in a remote or impartial way of your action plan that addresses the inequalities and broader habits of South Africa apartheid. The need to meet the questions that people have or how they explain how they can be understood in broader programming is less aware.
Some of the things that are expressed may not be built up in surveys or in the type of questions; ask those commissioned to carry out the survey. It looks at people, apparently, almost all; related to the protection of election elections, rather than the wider organic relationship with the people, aiming to plan to improve their lottery.
There was a time when the ANC played a curricular role, which led not only by & # 39; Getting a big foundation that would follow its broad instructions, but to # 39; explain the significance of developments in the country, how they will address the challenges faced with freedom to achieve a sustainable future. During the struggle many of them used ANC leadership statements and their; debate them.
The study of Radio Saorsa and in particular the recitation of the CCF at the January 8 date has been widely used and, in particular, sent to everyone and also to various aspects of the society- social behavior, recognizing the problems of a broad and diverse character that people met and gave ideas to address them, in the different situations that faced human beings.
That is no longer. ANC speakers offer no clear indication of the problems of the countryside and how they should be addressed. Most of the statements are in place; come from ANC HQ which provides limited meaning and are quite empty. They are involved in the battle within the body and oversee challenging parties, telling us that there is little influence. This may have been due to the fact that Ramaphosa is president, ANC's public faces have stated that they are involved in the removal decisions.
Although Ramaphosa is strong on issues such as loss for investment, it does not inspire an understanding or clear commitment to the complex problems faced by people. dealing with hardship in their daily lives. The content of statements does not include a strategic vision that is in place; value the different areas where people still have little freedom.
To short, ANC does not have a vision, it does not mean something that is in its own right. coming from anywhere and suddenly their advanced growth for his / her. society as a whole. There is no vision that is today's connection for its historical role for the poorer and the vulnerable people, on the outskirts and quietly. There is no vision that shows a plan to improve their lottery.
In this context, ministers and other directors can be seen at & # 39; Introducing roles that were fundamental to the ANC vision of general freedom, as in the statement of xenophobic statements that have passed without rebuke.
If it is possible to say that much of this is due to the weak situation of Ramaphosa, what is the same as those of us who are; connect it helpfully to his president; Supporting, do not we want to fail? If Ramaphosa can not do so many things he wants to do, what still can he do? gives hope to those who suffer constant hardship?
If we are to become a patient and recognize Ramaphosa needs to balance his armies to strengthen his support, the country is not backed back with ANC relief within the organization? The support for Ramaphosa can not be without bombs. It is consistent with some of the things, if it's a? make freedom grow, if it's a? Keeping a sense of hope for all, preventing it from subscribing to the freedom of attitudes that many people have offered to offer everything.
Plus the cost of preserving the president; Much of that is abandoned, what we support and why we are doing it; Continue to support that leadership, of a kind that does; Do lots of questions that can be arranged, or a range of important things organized?
It is vital to realize politics and this may be possible without breaking Ramaphosa's dominance, supported by sections of the ANC, but, go beyond that, drawing on people that are located in different places, sometimes in groups, sometimes not.
What do we understand by politics that is a? fight and how it is accomplished? What is and what agents to achieve? Impairment can not be reduced to a few formulas or a checklist of the objectives that may be or can be achieved. One is talking about the quality of freedom that is expanding, which includes people's hopes and dreams, even if not all of them; happen at the same time. In fact, it should not be done at the same time because of it; That the understanding of emancipation and freedom needs to be increasing, and # 39; expanding, attracting more and more people as leadership and the wider people, who are involved in freedom, and Understand more and more Post-E-mail It belongs to those who have and who have; Continue to experience coldness, poverty, inequality and a range of remote formats.
At the center of politics; It is possible to fight and a vision of vision for the people of the country. They are not implemented. It must be respected and that must be central to the development of a revitalization vision. That's not just the case with political party leaders. come. Those who suffer in a variety of ways must give their content information. They will be part of the process to produce a product that will affect the effects that affect them and their; improve their lives. It is urgent to build a broad move to support such goals. But careful and precise arrangements need to be taken.
Ramaphosa must continue to break corruption and his / her. strengthening state institutions. But he also needs to be involved in any campaign that revives the revival. This will help to overcome the energy struggle within ANC and its; make sure that it expresses the aspirations and its & quot; loyalty to all liberated people in South Africa. DM
